Tracey Richardson reached rock bottom.
She was clinically depressed, morbidly obese, unfit, her business had collpased and two of her four children had cystic fibrosis.
She was faced with giving up or radically changing her life.
She chose to change and succeeded. She went from being a non-athlete to competing in a triathlon and the Hawaii Ironman, raising money for cystic fibrosis in the process – and then wrote about it in Going the Distance.
It’s an honest, open and inspiring account of an ordinary woman doing extraordinary things.
